Check out my new shopping buddies!
My mum absolutely loves owls, so I made one for her for Mother's Day. I haven't been able to post these earlier, though, because I made the other for a friend's birthday last week, and I couldn't risk her seeing them!
I've already been informed by my mum that having one of these wise fellas in the coin slot of your supermarket trolley ensures that you spot some fantastic bargains. I don't need to be told twice - I'm making one for myself to double up as a cheery bag charm.
By the way, my new golden rule when making anything with felt (not needlefelting) is to soak the pieces in spray starch and leave to dry before stitching them together. It stops the felt going fluffy when cut and helps keep the finished product cleaner for longer. I wrote a post about the many uses of this wonder product here.
A busy day today so this bird's gotta fly...
